All media cover today’s meeting between Kosovo President Hashim Thaci and Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov. Koha reports that one of the key topics of discussion at the meeting was Kosovo’s participation at the upcoming EU Summit on the Western Balkans in Sofia, Bulgaria. Borrisov said after the meeting that President Thaci is invited to attend the summit. “Kosovo will be represented the way it has been recognized by over 100 world countries. Whereas as far as countries that haven’t recognized it are concerned, we will find a solution,” he said. The news website recalls that several EU member states, most notably Spain, were against Kosovo’s participation at the summit. Telegrafi reports that Thaci told a joint press conference after the meeting that Kosovo has met all the visa liberalization requirements. “After the Assembly adopted the border demarcation [with Montenegro] this issue has been closed. I see things moving in the right direction, the decision is in the hands of EU authorities … Visa liberalization should happen this year,” Thaci is quoted as saying. Lajmi quotes Thaci as saying that Kosovo does not mind the relations between Russia and Serbia, but that by recognizing Kosovo’s independence, Russia would help Serbia too. He also said that Kosovo “shares the position of the European Union and the United States of America as far as sanctions are concerned”.  Borissov said Kosovo and Serbia must resume dialogue because there is no alternative to the process. “There is no alternative to dialogue. You must resolve your disputes with the Serbs. I am saying this to all leaders in the Balkans, you must set aside your egos because this will cause other problems in the region,” Borissov said. Gazeta Express reports that Borissov told President Thaci: “You and the Serbian President have a great burden but you need to do your job. There is no other alternative. We have all seen what happened with the conflict. You must resolve disagreements together with the Serbs and then the EU will see us differently”.
